Experience this architectural masterpiece a short walk from Lake Michigan. Nestled in the forest along a ravine, this stunning home is perfectly oriented to take advantage of the seasonally changing ravine views and professionally landscaped grounds. Look out into wooded splendor from the walls of windows on all four levels of this true work of art. This magnificently designed home is impressive from the moment you enter the soaring, double-height entry foyer and living room, beautifully appointed with rich wood beams and mantels, a custom staircase and hardwood floors. The extraordinary interior is highly functional for living and entertaining with a circular floor plan, an immense double-sided, two-story brick fireplace, and an open-concept layout. The fit-for-a-chef kitchen is open to the family room - ideal for socializing or watching children while cooking. This sophisticated and stylish kitchen includes custom cabinetry, granite countertops, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Dacor range, Fisher & Paykel dishwashers, and an eating area with a huge counter for family buffet dining. Tucked away from the main living area is a primary suite, which includes a cozy den with a brick fireplace, built-in desk, and balcony. The home's unique multi-level layout includes a library on the lower level, adjacent to a screened-in porch -- perfect for reading and relaxing while listening to birds and the rustling of leaves on breezy days. The second floor has three generously-sized bedrooms, two full baths with skylights, and another balcony. Ascend a beautiful spiral staircase to a large bedroom among the treetops. Off the caterer's kitchen on the first floor is another beautiful spiral staircase which leads to a sun-soaked bonus room ideal for a home office, art studio, or playroom and opens to a serene upper-level terrace. This home offers exquisite privacy on the circle of a quiet street. Enjoy peaceful tranquility and gorgeous views from the lovely backyard wood and stone deck. Plus -- experience a RARE and highly desirable feature -- winding stairs down the ravine to a picturesque walking path leading a short distance to Lake Michigan. Distinguished by design and defined by quality, this home is truly exceptional.
